Neil Warnock held a pre-match press conference at Cardiff City Stadium ahead of Wednesday’s Premier League trip to Manchester City.

The Gaffer began by explaining how he’s lifted his players following Sunday’s match against Chelsea.

“I think it’s more broken hearts than injuries,” he said. “I thought West Ham was our best performance of the season, and that was topped against Chelsea.

“You just have to get on with it and go onto the next one. Not many more things could have gone against us in the second half of this season.

“It shows how fine a balance football is at any level and the sooner that VAR comes in, the better.”

Neil turned his attention to Wednesday evening’s test at the Etihad Stadium, highlighting the importance of his squad's team spirit in bouncing back for the remaining matches of the 2018/19 season.

“We go to Manchester City on Wednesday," he continued. "It’s a game we’ve got to do our best in. They’ve got two teams in their squad and I doubt any of our boys could get in either of them.

“What we have got is a team - they’re genuine lads. It was never a game we had big expectations from, but we’ve got to lift ourselves and put in a performance up in Manchester.

“In the last seven games I’m going to do the best I can with this group of lads for the fans.”
